Narciso Rodriguez | New York Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2012

We all know Narciso Rodriguez isn’t an overdone and bold designer, so what else to we expect but another great minimal and well-crafted collection from the style genius himself. However, in preparation for next season’s load of color and bold patterns, Narciso ups his collection a bit, and fuses his perfectly subtle designs with a bold spew of color and patterns.  First of all, the models were topped with perfectly slicked back hair, dyed in tones of  copper, green, purple, blue, yellow, orange and white.  Upon opening, one would think that the show would take its usual form of minimalism, however Rodriguez being inspired by Korean artist Kim Joon, the collection soon took a turn to show a graffiti of patterns and vivid color blocking.  I loved the way he utilized the sheer fabric, which obviously under-layered by skin, showed a great contrast against the color.  Light tones of blue lent itself to the calmness of the collection, while bold pops of orange proved to bring a loudness to it. There were asymmetric cuts everywhere, in my opinion adding to the chicness of the collection, but ending on a light note, I think it was an incredible collection that ranks high on my list of favorites for New York Fashion Week. Check out the looks I love below, along with all the show photos.
